I am currently on venlafaxine for depression and anxiety but am reducing this medication. I am now down to 37.5mg every other day. My psychiatrist has now prescribed me mirtazapine 30mg per night. Haven't started taking them yet as the side effects concern me and these were not discussed when i was prescribed them. The reason i am so concerned is all the problems i have had with venlafaxine - constant gastric problems. The withdrawal from venlafaxine is horrendous, it has taken me 6 months to get down from 225mg per day to 37.5mg every other day, and this is still making me ill. Wondering how common the weight gain issue is with mirtazapine, and the pains in the legs when medication taken on a night, thus preventing sleep. As lack of sleep is one of my main problems. Any advice would be most welcome. My next appointment to see psychiatrist is not for another 10 weeks so don't want to wait until then
